A PROFESSIONAL hair whizz has listed the five reasons you should never skip drying your locks.
We get it – you've had a long day and the last thing you can be bothered with is spending ages drying your hair.
But whilst you may not think much of it – after all, what can go wrong? – a hairdresser has urged beauty fans to not skip this important step.
The pro, who works at Visible Changes salon in Texas, the US, insisted there's a list of issues caused by going to bed with drenched hair.
''It can lead to severe hair breakage, fungus and yeast growth, dandruff and dermatitis, cause acne and scalp rigngworm,'' the whizz revealed in the video.
The latter, scalp ringworm, is a rash caused by a fungal infection that will usually make your scalp itchy, scaly.

In severe cases, researchers have claimed, the infection can even cause bald patches all over the head.
Despite the name, there are no worms involved – the name comes from its circular appearance.
Beauty lovers on TikTok were mortified after watching the clip and dozens flocked to comments.
One person wanted to know: ''How does our hair know we’re sleeping.''

Once you're done drying your hair, it's time to apply serums – but did you know we've been doing it all wrong?
Sharing his tips and tricks, the hair guru Matt, from New York, the US, took to TikTok to enlighten us all.
''Don't apply hair serum from the bottle onto your hair,'' he said to his 1.4million fans.
''Most oil-based or serum-based hair products are gonna perform best when you break them down really well on your palm.''
According to Matt, who posts under the username @mattloveshair, you should first squeeze a tiny amount of the serum and rub into into your hands for eight or so seconds.
Once it's warm and ready to use, gently work it into your locks and watch magic happen.
Posted less than a day ago, the clip has already taken the video-sharing platform by storm, racking up a whopping 1.3million views.
But whilst Matt swore by this trick, social media users were divided – whereas some thanked the guru, others reckoned it was a waste of product.
''But doesn’t the serum just absorb into ur skin?'' one person wondered.

''But I’m not a fan of how the oils leave my hand,'' a third commented.
